Ever enjoyed the beautiful sights and sounds of Turkey?
Television actress Krystle D’Souza recently took a trip to this lovely locale and posted pictures on her Instagram feed.
Let’s take a tour of Turkey through Krystle’s eyes.
‘Welcome to Istanbul! Standing tall at the top of Galata Tower ! When there’s so much to see and so little time this view is everything!’ Krystle writes.
Kissing a dolphin!
Yes, that happened too, Krystle assures us, adding, ‘This was something I didn’t plan to do at all in turkey but as they say the best things happen unexpectedly…’
Krystle enjoys a swim with a dolphin.
‘You will know the path by actually travelling on the path. Marmaris you are beautiful,’ she writes from the beautiful resort town in Turkey.
Krystle shares some trivia about Turkey’s first president: ‘This statue is a monument to the first president of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. This beautiful landmark stands in a square near the marina. There are plenty of shops, open air cafes and places to eat, right next to the marina.’

She shares some information about the castle: ‘The Marmaris Museum is housed within the Castle, a historic monument that bags the highest spot in Old Marmaris, offering stunning views of the sea and the town below.’
At the Duden Waterfalls in Antalya.
When in Turkey, you have to try Hamam, Krystal insists.
Then she explains: ‘The word, “hamam”, originating from the Arabic hamma (means “heating up”), means steam bath and is based on the heating of cold water. Before you can decide whether you hate or love going to a Turkish bath or hamam, you need to experience it at least once.’
‘Cheers ANTALYA! Belek,’ says Krystle, from the Pine Beach Resort & Club.

The Church of St Anthony of Padua, locally known as Sent Antuan, is a basilica and the largest church of the Roman Catholic Church in Istanbul, she shares.

Krystle takes a stroll at Taxim Square.
Krystle tucks into an ‘Islak hamburger,’ which means ‘wet hamburger’, she explains. ‘It is an Istanbul specialty that you must try,’ she recommends.
Krystle gets lost in the Grand Bazaar of İstanbul.
‘The Grand Bazaar means ‘Covered Market’ (thankfully for me since it was raining). It is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, with 61 covered streets and over 4,000 shops. It was listed No.1 among the world’s most-visited tourist attractions, and why not it has it all!! The Grand Bazar at Istanbul is often regarded as one of the first shopping malls of the world,’ she writes.
Krystle enjoys her own company, with the Hagia Sophia (seen through the window) giving her company.
She devours a baklava.
‘I’m coming home, I’m coming home. Tell the world I’m coming home. Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday,’ Krystle writes, as she says goodbye to yet another beautiful vacation.
